Resolution #109: Priority to Jobs (Official French version)

A CPQ government supports the arrival of new immigrants in Québec. Immigrants can partly offset our demographic shrinkage and can enrich the pool of our workforce.

Beyond these utilitarian considerations, the party wants Québec to be a haven where the integration of newcomers is accomplished in the most harmonious way possible. Thus, we will have an influx of future citizens ready to love and adopt our customs freely and through interaction. The selection of immigrants will be based on a balance between economic, cultural and demographic needs.

The means chosen by the Conservative Party to achieve these objectives are threefold:

  • an enlightened selection of immigrants, with particular emphasis on the economic integration of immigrants in Québec (according to the needs of the workforce or entrepreneurial skills);
  • a welcoming policy where learning our language, our history and our traditions are especially essential; and
  • an effective policy on integration in the workplace at their skill levels, including recognition of skills acquired abroad.
